Our last months guest blogger, Lisa Owen, provided some really great information about dealing with the influx of packaging and plastics that most households would have experienced over Chrissy and New Year. I suppose with the popularity of the Boxing Day and New Year sales the influx of waste has been even more prevalent in our homes into January.
Lisa has kindly kept us updated with some further information and more recently sent us through some links to organisations that can provide a much greener solution to not only our general waste disposal but purchases we can make that will assist with better decisions and the day-to-day greening of our worlds.
First of all I'd like to leave a link to Lisa's own blog. Have a read of the below link and you'll see how passionate Lisa is about this subject and why we were so grateful she agreed to be our guest blogger last month.
